All tax cuts should be done away with then. For all income levels.
Taxes should be increased to create revenue to pay down the deficit.
Public schools are entitlements, hey not everybody went to school 300 years ago right?
We don't need roads either, third world countries operate just fine without them.
Financial aids and grants should all be abolished. Who needs college anyways.
State fundings should be cut or done away all together. The citizens can pay for their own services.
Do away with Medicare and Social Security entirely. They're all "entitlements" anyways right?
No need for such an extensive millitary, follow the lead of Canada!
Hmmm...sounds like North Korea is your ideal country then (except for the millitary part).
"It works better?" Where did you get that from? If it "works better" then the economy would not be in the state that it's in now. So obviously it doesn't "work". I'm simply telling you what is.It works better than taking money from those that create jobs thru the production of wealth and redistributing it to those that produce nothing.
Nobody "creates" wealth by waving a wand. That is a rather ignorant assumption. Wealth is created through an economy that's running smoothly and efficiently. The poor/middle class/upper middle class produce more value than the rich compared to what they're paid. The problem is that people are paid based on merit and not value.
Class war? Not really. It's a war committed against mainstream America by the classless robber barons.

Hm...its the richest people in this country who pay most of the taxes, so if over the years they want to repay the hundreds billions of dollars that we are going to have to borrow from China in order to finance allowing the richest people to keep 100K of their money, then fine. Oh wait, no they are just gonna raise prices over time and pass the buck down to the middle class like they always do.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
Overall, there are compromises that neither side likes. Yes, it does raise taxes but it reduces expenses by three times the amount that taxes will be raised.
The president's deficit commission: Nice try | The Economist
Seems like a fairly realistic proposal to me overall. We are not going to get there by just reducing entitlements.This is an ambitious response to Americaís fiscal woes, perhaps overly so. Some Democratic members balked at the draft, which cuts spending three times as much as it raises taxes. Republicans were only a bit more open minded. The snag is that at least 14 of the commissionís 18 members, of whom 12 now serve in Congress, must approve it before it can be sent to the Hill. This will be tough, presaging a vicious fight if any of the proposals do reach the floor of Congress.
So Obama is going to extend the Bush tax cuts.
All I read is bitching about it by the GOP. Bitch if he doesn't extend, and bitch if he does. Stop crabbin and help build the cabin, for Christ's sake!
HELPING HILLARY PICK OUT HER INAUGURAL GOWN!The jokes write themselves!
